That is not a headphone socket -- it is a line-level socket.

Ok, not being an audio person, what is the differnce between a line level socket and a headphones socket?

Is a headphone socket for devices without build in amplifiers? and a line level socket the opposite?

Presumably using headphones isn't the cause of the very poor sound on the line level socket?
